Local post-hardcore faves Quicksand summed up everything positive about so-called alternative rock with their near-perfect 1993 LP Slip, a record that brilliantly combined underground edginess with major-label sheen. The fact that local shows in past years have sold out pretty much instantaneously should tell you something about how well Slip and its ’95 follow-up, Manic Compression, have aged.
